Arrays in AOE3 RMS

        It has always been believed that  Age of Empires III’s coding language  was extremely primitive  and did not have arrays.   Every single time, instead of storing sets of variables, one had to go through and actually name every single one.   Sometimes this wasted hours per script.

         However… RMS Arrays DO exist! By most random chance, I found them in less than a minute skim through the ai files >_< All this time we've been using vars over and over again.. argh!

        More information on my AOE3 Scripting Page  

There might be even more functions than this. I’ve only just found out there were arrays in the past 10 minutes. XD

Easy Page Creator Updates

        While fixing it up for use by Paperfriend on his guides library, I added many new updates and features - and might as well update my main code as well.

        Updates include: Cookie-based log in (remembers info) and log out, smarter search engine (can also search all fields and highlights results), shows number of results, ability to hide/show certain details, full bbcode support, etc.

New Ladders

        The new ladders that counts FFA and has many more viewing options is now up and replaced the old ones. :)

        A few new features are filtering by game type, skipping to certain days to view games, etc.

        Also the ladders now use the XML feeds, which should be faster (although it seems to be somewhat more error prone).   Let me know if you find any problems.
